‘House Of The Dragon’ season 2 trailer previews Targaryen civil war

HBO Max has released the official trailer for House Of The Dragon‘s upcoming second season.

The newly released trailer builds upon the tension that highlighted season one’s end, as Aegon II (Tom Glynn-Carney) and Rhaenyra Targaryen (Emma D’Arcy) butt heads to claim the Iron Throne, kickstarting a Targaryen civil war, otherwise known as the Dance of the Dragons.

The trailer sees The Blacks, led by Rhaenyra and Daemon (Matt Smith), plan an invasion of King’s Landing to claim the Iron Throne from the Greens, led by Aegon. Over the course of the intense trailer, we get several glimpses of the bloody and fiery war to come, along with a trip to The Wall.

The second season was renewed five days after the premiere of season one, in August 2022, and is set to air on June 16 2024.

The series, which is a prequel to the HBO hit Game Of Thrones, is based on George R. R. Martin’s 2018 book Fire & Blood. It is set almost 200 years before the events of Game Of Thrones, and chronicles the events which lead up to the decline of House Targaryen.

Starring Matt Smith, Emma D’Arcy, Rhys Ifans among others, the first seasons received high acclaim, and won the Golden Globe Award for Best Television Series – Drama. Other returning cast members from the first season includes Olivia Cooke as Alicent Hightower and Ewan Mitchell as Aemond Targaryen.

In a four-star review of the first season, NME wrote: “What is reassuring is that House Of The Dragon feels as though it is walking on solid ground: the bubbling rivalries, the jostling for power, the eruptions of violence; six episodes in, it is all coming together to create a rich stew … it is a relief to see a prequel that seems to know what it’s doing. A decent watch for fans and neutrals alike.”
